Review of Nixtaco

Nixtaco
Ranked #49 of 498 Restaurants in Roseville
Price range: US$9 - US$20
Description: At Nixtaco we want to open people’s eyes, and palates, to a whole new take on Mexican food. A distinctly Northern Mexican take, using recipes simmered in tradition, yet fired upon the flames of innovation.

Wow, we scored a homerun when we discovered this little local gem when traveling through Roseville. Lucky us, as they offer a sampler Taco plate (4 total / 2" each) and each one of us in our party ordered one. We each ordered black beans and guacamole and both were just as delicious - my only suggestion would be to hold off on the salt on each, yet otherwise flavorful. Pricing is reasonable, considering everything down to their awesome blue tacos are homemade, so go hungry and be prepared to be amazed. Parking is a bit tight even around 5:00 pm, but seems like a lot of folks are coming and going, so be patient, it's definitely worth the wait.

Will definitely visit again and will refer others. Lucky Locals!

The Tacos tasted ok, the meat was a little chewy. Tacos were served on a single Tortilla. Traditionally they are served on two two tortillas. $4.75-$5 per taco is way over priced! My order of two tacos and a soft drink came out to $13.67. Together with my parents order of two tacos each and a soft drink...came out to $41.01. Yes, That's $41.01 for 6 tacos and 3 soft drinks. Going rate for tacos at ANY Taqueria in the Sacramento Area is $1.75 - $2.50. Its really a rip off. First and Last Time I will go there.

Came here for the first time with a few people.. I am pretty sure we all agreed we would go back...

Located in Roseville... Lots of parking..

Small set up...

Tacos and beers. Kids menu as well..

Five buck beers at happy hour.. nice craft, local selection. . 3 buck tacos... We tried them all and went back for more.. chips and salsa is available...

You order at the counter and they bring the beers and food .

Tacos were very tasty.. they were above solid..

We would return for sure...

Well if you like tacos, then this is the place for you. Other plates or enters looked very good but each of us ordered the taco plate that had 6 street tacos to try. The corn tortillas were fresh and tasty and each taco was very good with creative flair.....our favorites were the short rib and pork belly tacos. Casual fun atmosphere. Definitely a repeatable eatery for dinner.....
